Polco joins exclusive Moderne Ventures venture capital and growth equity firm industry immersion program.

Moderne Ventures, a strategic venture capital and growth equity firm investing in technology companies in and around the industries of real estate, finance, insurance and sustainability, announced its 2024 Spring Moderne Passport Class. The Moderne Passport Program is an intensive six-month industry immersion program providing its participants education, exposure, insight, and relationships to drive customer growth.

"At Moderne, we take a generalist approach to vertical investing, looking outside of our core industries to find technologies that can be applicable within them," said Constance Freedman, Founder and Managing Partner at Moderne Ventures. "This latest Passport cohort includes technology innovators pushing the boundaries in predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, sustainability, government policy, pet insurance and last-mile delivery. We look forward to helping them gain exposure and grow their customer base in Moderne's industries."

The Moderne Passport program hosts companies of all stages – in this cohort, companies range from seed to Series C, and have raised over $678M+ in aggregate of funding with collective valuations of $1.3B to date. The eleven companies are:

We become an extension of the companies' business development teams, helping them hone their go-to-market strategies and open up new distribution channels across multi-trillion dollar verticals of real estate, finance, insurance and sustainability and our Moderne Network of 1500+ partners," notes Carolyn Kwon, Moderne Ventures' Passport Director.
